Crocodile Aims to 'Unleash' WebRTC's Potential with Real-Time Web Communications Platform

Crocodile RCS is a provider of systems and solutions that power the deployment of rich communications services on an open, next generation platform. So far, the company has proven itself a forward thinker by introducing support for HTML5-based applications using RTCweb and WebSockets standards on its SuperNode cloud communications systems a year ago.

It's not too surprising, then, that Crocodile has now embraced WebRTC. Specifically, the company has introduced a complete real-time communications platform that features an open cloud signalling network, a developer SDK that offers session control, management and billing capabilities, and sample WebRTC applications.

Targeted at individual app designers, company website developers and service providers that want to incorporate real-time, Web-based communications into their applications and services, Crocodile's new communications platform is poised to unleash the full potential of WebRTC, according to Crocodile co-founder, John Parr.

"In the first wave of WebRTC deployments we will see a proliferation of RCS, 'Skype-like' conferencing and value-added services and Crocodile's platform supports all of these," said Parr in a statement. "But the really exciting thing about real-time web communications is its potential to change the way we communicate, so that remote communication is enhanced through process and context exchange to become a truly shared experience. Future releases of the Crocodile platform are aimed at unleashing the full potential of WebRTC."

Meanwhile, Crocodile has also released a sample WebRTC application called Crocodile Talk, which is meant to demonstrate the scope and ease-of-use of the company's new developer SDK. As such, Crocodile Talk offers straightforward voice and video call functionality — direct from the browser, of course — but with features above many basic WebRTC platforms, including low-cost calling to fixed and mobile numbers, instant messaging, presence and file transfer.

As a leading contributor to the open source community, Crocodile has made its cloud SIP, XMPP and MSRP signalling network open and free, while also enabling peering with other networks. This enables Crocodile users to call those registered with other networks by way of their SIP URL.
